- Before attending a class, try to skim the chapter so as to have an idea of what are the concepts to be learnt in that chapter.
- Take notes as soon as your teacher starts covering the first chapter. Take notes in every class and study these notes daily. All you have to do is read the notes if you do this everyday. Go back and read the chapters for the upcoming political science class.

- Try to study in groups. It helps you understand what other people think, what is their perspective.
